Following just shy of three months' deliberating and cogitating the pros and cons of the various breed leaders and section bests from The Scottish Farmer's Champion of the Decade, our top four judges have found their inter-breed winners amongst the beef, dairy, sheep and heavy horse sections.

It has been a busy time during which you, our loyal readers, have selected your top three from no fewer than 37 breeds to go forward to the various judges, who revealed their top winners in last week's issue of The Scottish Farmer.

This week, our inter-breed judges, Kay Adam, Royal Highland Agricultural Society director and chief steward of all cattle lines at the Highland Show and Young Farmers, selected her winner amongst the beef entries, while last year's Young Farmers' top dairy stockjudger, Struan McGregor, from Parkmill, Tarbolton, put the milking females through their paces.

Former Royal Highland Agricultural Society chairman, Jimmy Warnock, found the best amongst a massive section of 16 sheep winners and Tom Tennant, chief steward amongst the heavy horses, had the difficult decision of finding a leader amongst his top three.

Finally, well known horse breeder, commentator and Scottish Farmer columnist Tom Best, adjudicated the winners amongst the light legged horses' Cuddy qualifiers to find a supreme.
